Many officers that get caught violating the law go uncharged. Looking the other way when one officer sees another's officer's crimes it is known as "Professional Courtesy" in the LEO industry. Citizens seem to have lost tolerance for Professional Courtesy and Media silence. WPSD Local 6 has shown some recent promise compiling much of the information on this list.
A thorough, open record, random drug screening handled by a third party is the only way to protect citizens and the good clean officers that are apt to be ran out of corruption growing agency. As you skim this list pause to think about how many lives (and their children's lives) of KY citizens that have been devastated by these officers and other officers like them. It's time to clean up the entire State.

Kentucky State Police - Embezzling
Note: Kentucky State Police is VERY big on Professional Courtesy. They refused to file charges on
- Atty. Jennifer Peeler for making a false police report in her bid to avoid a malpractice lawsuit,
- Atty. Shannon Powers for complicity,
- Sheriff John Hayden for child endangerment,
- Social Worker Rita Jenkins for committing perjury,
- Hon. Cynthia Sanderson & Hon. Deanna Wise Henschel for child endangerment as they denied due process to the children's dad so that the Sheriff John Hayden can use the children to make his C.I.'s Sheriff-Supported-Meth-House more believable to paranoid meth users,
- Former Trooper Mark Posey - Known for fraudulent checks - not until enough pressure was put on the KSP did they "allow" him to resign. Mark Posey later lost his cert as Police Chief as he continued thefts and bad checks...
- Former Trooper Logan Burks - Stole $721.07 in fuel and paid restitution of $352.58 - Kentucky State Police Maj. Jeremy Thompson of whom is denying records to WPSD (a news agency that has been historically mostly silent on corruption - they are doing better this time! for more info), It’s important to remember $721 qualifies for felony charges. $352 is only a misdemeanor. It's even more important to note that Maj. Thompson stuck to Professional Courtesy and refused to charge Burks for even the misdemeanor.
If Kentucky State Police embezzling is as rampant as many Kentuckians believe; could there be a blackmail backlash if KSP didn't stick to their "Professional Courtesy" policies?
Kentuckians are developing a ZERO-Tolerance for "Professional Courtesy and all other double standards.
